The Gift Of A Rainy Day
I awoke this morning to gentle raindrops pattering against my window pane, and I smiled because I knew it was going to be "one of those days." I believe every so often God brings us one of these days as a reminder to take a big deep breath and slow down a bit. Although I do love summer, sometimes it's nice to take a break from the heat and busyness that comes with it.
The sunlight that usually streams through my window was absent, so I thought what a perfect time it would be to light some candles.
I just love how my home looks with the beautiful candlelight flickering, most especially on a rainy or dark, cold winter day. It gives me such a warm, cozy feeling and makes me so glad that I have a "place called home!"
Rainy days will almost always find me in the kitchen doing a little baking. I baked these cookies today, and they smelled and tasted delicious. Mr. P said that the house smelled so good when he arrived home. I just love that! It makes
my heart smile:)
I also sat down and a wrote a few notes to dear friends. I used the darling "S" note cards my friend gave me for my birthday. I looked on the back of the note cards and do you know what the company is called that makes them? Chic Chat!! How cute is that?
I also took the time to peruse some of my beloved Victoria magazines (love the blue and yellow cover)
And had a nice cup of hot tea with Emilie Barnes!
Finally, if Miss Bonnie were here she might tell you that I even took a cat nap! Who? Me? I think she's mistaken, see, the bed is made;)
Ah, thank you Lord for this beautiful rainy day. I guess it's good that they don't come around too often, or I'd probably never get anything done!
